An ethical question arises--should a student who buys an educational
version at a discount go on to make money on contract using the software?
This I have absolutely no problem with. The software is legally purchased and
what you do with it is your business. It could be just as much an ethical
question to ask if someone is doing wrong by using software for illegal
activities like money laundering?
Besides, tuition and books are expensive!
